Ice fishing is still pretty good. We have to be a bit more patient as we can see the fish on the camera but have to tease them into biting. 24-42’ with a gold 1/8oz jig and minnow seems to do the trick as well as your favorite jigging Rap. 16-18’ is seeing some nice action early in the morning and late in the evening as well. We’ve now got close to 2 feet of ice and the lake road from the Kabetogama Visitor Center to the Ash River landing has really been great! The park service has all the trails open for snowmobiling also.
Up at the Ash River a mix of shallow and deep waters is needed for the most action. Early morning and late evening 17-21’ and mid day in 35-45’ has proven successful. Using anything that glows for walleye and sauger has worked. The crappie bite continues to be strong! Try across from the Ash River opening over by the opening into Lost Lake.
